DRCOG Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) – May 15, 2020

The focus of much of the May TAC meeting was on next steps for developing the 2050 Metro Vision Regional Transportation Plan (MVRTP). DRCOG staff shared the proposed major project types/categories for the 2050 MVRTP Priority Investment Framework: air quality regionally significant roadway capacity projects, air quality regionally significant rapid transit capacity, multimodal safety, active transportation, regional transportation operations and technology, and freight and goods movement. Staff also shared information related to identifying and soliciting proposed fiscally constrained candidate projects and what the process for choosing projects might look like. The TAC will have continued conversations soon about these next steps due to approaching deadlines for the plan to be completed. TIP Covid 19 impacts were also discussed as was DRCOG’s upcoming Federal Planning Certification Review.
